Early literacy

TEACHERs: Eliane Segers & Judith ter vrugte

The internet is rapidly becoming the main source of information for children when gathering information for school work. Children encounter digital texts, but reading methods in school hardly provide any attention to strategies that may help children deal with these online documents that may contain hyperlinks and multiple media. The theme “digital reading” focuses on individual variation in online reading comprehension, and aims to understand both the cognitive and linguistic factors that impact online reading comprehension, as well as the process of going through the online texts (self-regulation).

How are online documents processed and how is this related to reading comprehension?
